    I don't know how to fix it, but I know how to prevent it. I have always done as Lachlan says and lifted the drum, regardless of size. My unit is one of the earliest made and all I have done is have the motor rewound.

    Honestly, that is a brilliant idea, thank you. However while scouring the Internet and checkin with Kat labs there are none available. However, with the same theory, why couldn’t I string a rope across the two bars creating a point of equal lift distribution and supporting the actual lift bar?

    I use a 3005 drum, sometimes 8x10 film sometimes prints. I stop the rotation, put my hand under the drum, and lift the drum as I use the "handle" with my left hand. These lifts need a second handle like what Catlabs, used to make. I need to tinker something up. Or just keep on doing what I'm doing

    It comes down taking, leveraging the weight off of the section where the gears reside. I’m going to simply tie a rope at the end of the two silver bars and use that to take a majority of the weight.

    With the longer 8x10 drums the silver bars are under the drum. Same with the 2830, 2840 etc. The design is goofy. Best Regards Mike
